. and in a strange twist to this whole affair, one of the most public whistle-blowers, a man called sean hoare, who was a former entertainment reporter for the "news of the world" was found dead at his home this evening. so far, anyway, police are saying the death is unexplained but not suspicious. bob? >> schieffer: thank you very much, liz. liz palmer in london. in this country, president obama claimed some progress in negotiations to try to find a way to raise the debt limit and keep the government from defaulting on its financial obligations. the reason for the optimism was not all together clear but a cbs news poll out tonight reflects the political toll this crisis is taking. the public is split right down the middle over the president's handling of the situation, but congress fares worse. 58% disapprove of how democrats are handling it, 78% disapprove of what republicans are doing. we want to welcome tonight our new white house correspondent norah o'donnell to the broadcast. she has more on all of this and the poll. norah? >> reporter: good evening, bob. tonight we're learning new details ab

and disturbing news of the death of sean hoare, one of the first whistle blowers about the hacking going on at some of the newspapers when he worked under andy coulson. what are details on that? >> reporter: all right. so sean gives details to the news of the world. sean hoare's details of what happened describing the hacking and takes part in a "the new york times" expose in 2010 on the subject and one of those people who again and again and again says that top executives at news international, news of the world, knew what was going on. now, he's also believed to be an alcoholic or was a drug addict. he lived a very lively life. the police say his death is unexplained but not suspicious. he wasn't in good health. whether that could mean suicide or just some form of death because of overindulgence we don't know. whatever way we turn whether to rupert murdoch who only last week in the "wall street journal" said that minor mistakes have been made in the investigation but then says to the british people, sorry for what has happened. james murdoch who says quite publicly now he didn't know c

about the phone hacking at "news of the world"? >> first of all, sean hoare who cracked under the pressure, he did drink too much and died last week, he started it, and it was presented -- i just bought a bar in the south of england about nine months ago which is where hugh grant taped me. i was semi retiring from journal into. and the guardian presented it as a fantastic story. it was the british watergate and i was offered the chance to be part of it oovps. the whole point was, if we can label our former bosses, rebekah brooks, andy coulson who are arrested, not criminal masterminds but engaged in a media empire where criminality was rif, if that media empire got david cameron elected as the british prime minister, that's a good story. >> i have a break coming up. since you mentioned rebekah brooks and andy coulson, both former editors of "news of the world," do you have any doubt that they knew phone hacking was going on at that paperer? >> i have no doubt whatsoever. piers morgan was also my editor, but in that time in 1994-'5, it wasn't illegal. you could sit outside some
